Format: Paperback
Written from the viewpoint of those living in Leningrad when they were besieged by the Germans. Very interesting read for those who enjoy historical war stories. This is historical fiction and very well written.

Excellent Oct. 23 2010

I read this on my kindle. The Seige of Leningrad and its sequel The Betrayal were both great reads.

Haunting Nov. 23 2011
By Miss Melly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the story of Anna's stuggle to survive the siege of Leningrad, to provide for her family, to stay alive.
You almost feel guilty reading this novel with a full belly. Dunmore drives the hunger into your heart and the Russian winter into your bones.
It doesn't feel quite right to call this novel "beautiful", considering the subject matter - but it is.
Hauntingly beautiful.
A must read Dec 31 2014
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
She paints a picture with every word- I am so into this author! The reader is taken on a journey to death by starvation but on this journey we see also the art of survival, the depths of depravity some will sink to in order to preserve their existence and above all the utter stupidity of war. Must end now, I'm off now to read another Dunmore. Bravo - read it!
A gripping story Dec 19 2012
By Janet Colson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an absorbing and touching book. Dunmore creates a vivid world through her poetic words. As I learnt about the terrible seige of Leningrad, I could almost feel the crippling cold and ferocious hunger the characters endured, but Dunmore's lightness of touch makes the subject bearable. The emotional threads are well drawn and the story gripping.
The Siege Sept. 23 2012
By Eric A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book revealed the hardships of people enduring a cruel and long siege in the most appalling conditions. It portrays some of the worst and the best behaviors of people but in the end the message is a positive one and one of hope
